The bear was killed a couple of miles away from us – on Highway 101 in Santa Barbara County, California. Householders had reported a bear in their back yard. Neighbors tracked the bear’s path through the back yards of a housing estate, hoping Authorities would capture it and return it to the wilds. But all came to tragedy when the bear tried to cross the highway, attempting to seek refuge in the mountains beyond the motorway… but traffic never seems to stop in America.
